Rosie Love~

If Scott and I said it once,
we said it a thousand times~
"We couldn't have made it in China without Rosie"
and now we are saying it again...
"We couldn't make it without you Rosie!"

~You get up on your own each day and come down with a smile.
~ You kiss your little siblings goodbye and they run after you.
~ You drive yourself to school and text me you're there safe.
~ We all wait for you to drive back in each afternoon.
~ You run errands for me if I need you to.
~ You are so excited to see the littles when you get home.
~ You sit with them and eat popcorn while watching a movie.
~ You do your own laundry and sometimes put it away. :)
~ EK and SJ look to you as their role model
and WP just wants a big hug.
~ You were changed by China 
and we can see it all over your beautiful face!!!

God has blessed you big and we can't wait 
to see what He has in store for the rest of your life.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, 
plans to give you hope and a future.

PS!!! Amelia will be home from college tomorrow!!! YAY!!!

  3. I imagine your sweet Rosie is beautiful inside and out!
    You've done some amazing parenting and blessed by the rewards.
    How sweet to see Rosie with her littles! It always warms my heart to see my littles loving their big brothers too, what a gift!

  4. That is my sweet Rosie!!!! I still picture her as a first grader in my class. She is precious!!!

  5. The sweetest picture of love. Not surprised that Rosie is an amazing young woman. She has two great role models who are modeling the love of Jesus before her very eyes. You have given her an opportunity to see the Lord at work.

  6. It seems that Rosie lives up to her name. She is a stunning young woman.
